    ATM settings assisitance

    I am trying to set a very simple ATM, but can't seem to make it work. What I am trying to do is make an ATM to trade long or short with a stop loss of 8 ticks....I am trading 2 contracts....I want 1 contract to take profit at 3 ticks, and second to take profit at 6 ticks....however....once the first contract takes the 3 tick profit, I want the remaining stop loss to move up to a 2 tick stop loss.

    I can't seem to make this work...help!

        Hello usdivers,

        Thank you for the follow-up. My apologies, I mistakenly set this up to trade 3 contracts. Simply change your quantity to 2, also set the second target's quantity to 1 so that each target only acts on one contract.

        If questions come up or if we may be of any further assistance, please let us know.

          I did that...but after the first 3 tick profit is taken, the stop loss with the remaining contract does not go from 8 to 2...it still stays at 8... any ideas.

            still need help

            so if you see the pictures, this is where I am at the moment. Profit targets appear to be working, however the big problem are the stop loss.

            After the first 3 tic profit is taken, its stop loss should disappear, and then the second one that is left should automatically go to -2 stop, however, what is happening is that the stop loss still stays at -8.

            see pics, anyone have any idea to fix it?

              Hello,

              Thank you for the reply.

              You have the stop strategy applied to the wrong target. Please apply the stop strategy to target 2.

              If we may be of any further assistance, please let us know.
